    Walk Hard looks awesome.

    I knew about Jack White as Elvis... but I didn't know about the rest of these.

    Paul Rudd as John Lennon
    Jack Black as Paul McCartney
    Jason Schwartzman as Ringo Starr
    Justin Long as George Harrison
    Adam Herschman as Jerry Garcia
    Frankie Muniz as Buddy Holly
    Jack Black as Paul McCartney cracks me up. And its rated R? Awesome. That is a definate must see.
    I love the tagline too. "Life made him tough. Love made him strong. Music made him hard."

    I think it comes out the 21st. We got handed a free pass to see it the other night at the Arclite, but I totally forgot about it and missed out.

    Southland Tales played Santa Barbara for exactly one week, when I was in New York and then preoccupied with holiday crapola. I am not happy to have missed it.

    You know... I like Judd Apatow... but I gotta say, the girl makes a convincing argument.

    hah.

    No seriously. How many films has the man put out this year? Like seriously.

    And, take it from my perspective, as a female filmmaker. Judd Apatow is a sexist, misogynistic fucktard who has openly stated that he sees no reason to write a film with a strong female character because (and I quote) "chicks have too many movies already."

    His humor is idiotic and unoriginal; figuring out 15 different ways to make a joke about having a hard-on in an inappropriate public place is hardly genius or novel. His movies are trite, poorly written/constructed, and go on too long. Since when were comedies 2.5 hours?? Please.

    Man needs to stop being such a woman-hater and try and make something with some comedic value.

    Walk Hard looks tired to me, though the cameos will probably be amusing. I really liked Knocked Up, and The 40-Year-Old Virgin is good too.

    kitt kat... have you seen Knocked Up or Superbad?

    My girlfriend couldnt even watch the 40 Year Old Virgin. She basicaly thought the same thing about it as you do.

    However, I convinced her to see Knocked Up... and she LOVED it. She almost couldnt believe it was written/directed by the same guy. We then went and saw Superbad and we both thought that was great as well. We are both looking forward to Walk Hard. Mainly for the cameos though...

    i have. i don't get the hype behind it. there's a million other comedies that are funnier that don't resort to woman bashing, masturbation jokes, and sex.

    i'm no prude, trust me.

    but i've always been of the school of thought that believes resorting to sex, cussing, dirty jokes, bathroom jokes, etc. in a screenplay is a sign of an underlying lack of talent. simply put---those who use those things cannot think of how to phrase things in a way it would be intellectually/truly/affectingly humorous.

    compare something like superbad to the apartment.

    hmm. now, i don't think people will still be referencing superbad in 40 years like they do the apartment.

    i know it's a matter of personal taste, but the personal taste of the american public has really gone downhill when they label judd apatow as a 'cinematic genius.'

    Oh, how I do enjoy the comedic insights of high-school girls. A Jack Lemmon flick, seriously? Someone get this girl some puberty and a dick already, STAT.

    I agree on this. I honestly can't stand bathroom humor, or crude dirty/sexist jokes, or tons of cussing. Trust me, I took a couple screenwriting classes, and about 95% of the students in there thought it was so cool and funny to start throwing in all the cuss words they could think of (and I also wonder why all those film students were addicted to those dumbfuck zombie/vampire stories too...lame).

    I actually made it an effort on all my scripts to not use any cuss words or crude jokes (if it was a story that called for that kinda stuff).

    Well see, I know that would people's reaction...but I gotta tell you....after taking those 2 courses in screenwriting, and reading TONS and TONS of other kids scripts (both short stories and first acts), I got so tired of people throwing in the random "fuck" or "shit", or some joke about balls or dicks or crude names for whatever....it just got so stupid (and the worst was that we had to normally read these scripts out loud and assign parts - which made it worse because all the people in the class thought it was so funny to play a tourette character shouting "fuck your mother" in random moments).

    So I made an effort just so I wouldn't be part of that crowd, not caring if others or the teacher felt if wasn't real life enough or whatever. But I also made it my effort to never write some sort of zombie flick...which is about what 90% of the scripts were about. Seriously, zombies suck, zombie films suck...everything zombie sucks...try something new.

    I like how you said "facefuck" instead of "fuckface."

    Seriously.

    It made me laugh.

    Randy does have a point though. People cuss like the dickens in real life. Why should it be any different in movies?
    What I like about Judd Apatow movie is that they resemble real life SO closely. Like, you can actually imagine what is going on in the movie ACTUALLY happening. And you know a version of each character is real life. I dunno. Thats why I like his movies anyways.

    Dude, believe me, I actually do know what you're referring to. And yes, you're right, a great deal of scripts--particularly back when I was still taking classes--were bogged down with that. But that doesn't necessarily mean we should all be Paula Poundstone either.

    That character's actually supposed to be Cameron Diaz. And that bit of trivia is the only thing that's remotely funny about that fucking movie.

    What's the basis of the comparison? That they're both comedies? I guess, but the last time I checked, The Apartment wasn't about Jack Lemmon trying to get laid at a high school party (although that would be a funny movie, especially now). You might as well have suggested it be compared to Ernest Goes to Jail.

    Bad language, sexual references, etc., are signs of no talent ... when they're done poorly. When they're done well, they can achieve the same poetry as more sophisticated devices. Go watch Glengarry Glen Ross, and then we can have a conversation about the supposed dearth of talent represented by profanity.

    I wouldn't call Apatow a cinematic genius, either, but I think the mistake you're making is you're tarring all comedies with the same brush. Apatow's movies aren't Annie Hall, or Whit Stillman's Metropolitan, or Some Like it Hot. And – here's the important thing – they're not trying to be. His movies capture the language of a specific group, a group that talks and acts in a way that – your delicate sensibilities aside – rings true to me. You might not like the method, but it's a bullshit argument to claim all comedies should aspire to do things in the same way. Would the characters in a teen sex comedy really talk like the characters in The Apartment? Really?

    Yeah I know. I really enjoyed that movie the first time I saw it but I rewatched it recently and thought it was kind of shitty if true (the Cameron Diaz thing), which made it harder to enjoy the movie. Bill Murray still deserved an Oscar though.
